How I got it home and a card

Hello Everyone.....How did I shop for all my stuff in such a short time??.....how did I get it all home??..

Well, I had a wish list...whenever I hop around in blogland I write down what I like and what and desperately need....so I took my wishlist with me..in brand order [of course] and went from there..very easy, one stall 8 dies...

My paper pads purchases were all nearly on one table and marked to $5 pad...so I scooped a handful and paid...looked at them all later and not one was a dud!.

I did double up on lace, but they were purchased from the markets by the metre...so were the tiny plaster beach houses...and a few of the tiny things, all from the market...

All the chip board embellies were from one stall...the first stall I went into....they were not on the list..then I settled down and we went from the list till all done [missed out on a few]...then we went for just anything after that....we only had 2 hours...[long story]...

As far as getting it all home...well, I pack very light when I go somewhere, which is not very often...just so I can load up to come home...my home luggage weighed 10kilo more from when I left.


 I have a card to share with you for a challenge at Scraphouse Blog  and using a bingo board..



and I used the middle line....



Love this image from Saturated Canary [freebie ]called 'AVA'...I made the flowers myself and have calluses to prove it..lol..Cheery Lyn leaf swirl, ribbons from my stash, and my first bottle of liquid pearls is open and addictive...love this stuff.



Close up of image, coloured with Faber Castell pencils...sorry my pic's are still hazy, dont know what is up with my camera...



Side view...

Beautiful papers from Kaisercraft, double sided, from the Lake house collection 'Getaway'..

So there you go a few questions answered...

Now can you handle a bit of wonderful news, for me anyway...'My Lady' is home..............

I get to take care of her 7 days a week again...3 times a day....starting Monday..I'm so happy for her, as I went to see her before I went away and she was still saying 'I want to go home'...so with a few choice words in the right ears, they finally made the decision...we won!!

Off to my Dads this morning to pick up some parcels I had delivered there as my neighbours are unsavoury and did not want my stuff delivered here..a Wild Orchid Crafts Win..whoo hoo...

Luv CHRISSYxx
